W.M.'s Vietnamese Special Character GIFs
The following special character GIFs are designed to match the
Times font as displayed by Netscape
on my Macintosh, but may differ in size on different systems.
The GIFs have transparent background, and are suitable for use with various background
colours and images.
To download the GIFs, either brush the image with your mouse to activate the
"Save this Image as..." utility of your
browser, or click on the respective caption for individual display of the GIF which
can then be downloaded by pressing on "Save As"
of the topbar pulldown menu under "File".
The name of the GIF without the .gif ending is
given in the caption.
A red asterisk (*) after a caption indicates that the
<IMG SRC="..."> command for the corresponding GIF
should be imbedded in <SUB>...</SUB>

respectively, which are generally displayed correctly on just about
all browsers in use.
However, the displayed circumflex accent is too small for
clear depiction of combinations with tone marks. The GIFs have
been included to have vowels with lone circumflex accent matching
those with combinations of the circumflex with
tilde (ngã), dot (nng),
and hi tonal markations.
The same also refers to the respective uppercase characters.
